This is getting humorous. For awhile there my posts on the Diabetes.co.uk forum had been moved to a new thread. I had a look earlier today and discovered they have now been deleted entirely. I have to assume that would be because anyone who read them would understand that the moderator with whom I was debating was completely in the wrong. I had a look at some other threads and found he was attacking my advice on things like the need to replace the salt your kidneys will excrete when you significantly reduce carbs. His position is that you should restrict salt and drink lots of water. As anyone who is remotely familiar with hyponatremia would know, this is exactly the wrong thing to do.
Now, I find that my IP address has been banned which means I can no longer even look at the forums on that website. Wow, that’s pretty extreme. I can only conclude that I represented a huge threat to the moderator and his mission there which appears to be to sabotage people who are trying to benefit from a truly low-carb diet. He urges them to restrict fat and salt, both of which would make it very hard and probably impossible to maintain a long-term sustainable low-carb diet.
Why would he do that? Maybe he is clever and is consciously doing this so that people stay on meds and continue to require the supplies and equipment advertised there. Or maybe he is a complete idiot. I don’t know which it is but the net effect is that lots of people are being given bad advice which will impede their ability to improve their health through low-carb dieting.
I let my good friend Jimmy Moore know about this and I expect he will do a piece on his blog, hopefully a full exposé.
